We are very pleased to welcome Spa Aluminium into membership of the Aluminium Federation. Formed in April 1971, Spa Aluminium are one of the UK’s longest established specialist stockholders of aluminium extrusions & sheet. They hold a unique position as the country’s only major stockist with ‘on-site’ anodising, polishing and fabrication facilities giving them an unrivalled knowledge and experience in the supply of finished products.
From their 30,000 square foot base in Kent they are ideally placed to service the majority of the country with their own fleet of vehicles. In addition, they offer a monthly service to Europe as well as a specialist export packing service to clients as far afield as Sweden, Canada, America, China & Australia, to name a few.
As the sole UK licensee for Henkel’s revolutionary Spectrocolor process they are able to produce a wide range of stunning electrolytic anodised finishes in a range of colours including varying shades of grey and bronze and black. Combined with their range of linished and mirror polished options they can offer one of the most comprehensive ranges of specialist finishes available in the UK marketplace.
They specialise in stockholding premium quality 6063 anodising standard extrusion in their custom designed and temperature controlled warehouse. They have vast experience in the sourcing and handling of quality products and only use tried & tested suppliers who are able to understand and achieve their uncompromising quality requirements. All of their warehouse, packing and delivery operatives are trained to appreciate the importance of ensuring their products arrive at their destination fit for purpose. Their purpose-built racking and storage system also allows them to keep a range of anodised, chemically brightened and polyester powder coated pre-finished stock, enabling a ‘rapid response’ service to their customers’ requirements.
In addition to over 300 standard extrusions, a significant portion of their business is the supply of bespoke ‘customer special’ profiles. From the initial R&D stage to producing final CAD drawings, their technical sales department are adept at selecting the appropriate extruder for each client’s individual requirements, managing the quotation, ordering and stock replenishment phases to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience. Their ‘complete service’ offers many significant benefits and cost saving opportunities to their clients. As they undertake the stockholding and reordering of your products there is no need for finances to be tied up in warehouse space and staff. You are also afforded the advantage of being able to order on a ‘little & often’ basis, avoiding the expensive minimum quantities & extended lead times associated with dealing directly with a mill. As they gain a history of your purchasing habits they will establish a pattern to your requirements which will hopefully allow them to offer a rapid response to your orders.
